Review: Make Over Perfect Cover Two Way Cake 01 Light Beige

Posted by Kania Safitri at 1:01 PM 1 comments
Hello beauties...
Yup This review about local product but I think very familiar now in Indonesia. Actually, I got a chance to tried some of MAKEOVER products because I won their mini makeup case of goodies which you can read my full post about it here :)
The powder is packaged in a common round black case with the words MAKE OVER printed on the surface. On the bottom of the case, there are square holes like those you would find on a twin cake or two way cake packagings.
Inside the case, there is a round mirror, sizing about 5 cm in diameter. Underneath the product, I can flip it and find a round sponge to apply my powder. The sponge is of good quality because of the smooth surface and soft texture.
This product available 7 shades :
01 Light Beige
02 Sheer Pink
03 Sandy Beige
04 Natural
05 Coffee Beige
06 Cappuccino
07 Espresso

The main ingredients is talc, which may have sensitivity for some people who has developed hypersensitivity against it. However, for those without any allergies, feel free to use it. The second ingredient is probably what helps to create that smooth silky finish, dimethiconol stearate. So, again, for those having hypersensitivity towards silicone or its derivatives, it's probably best to skip this powder. The rest of the ingredients are mostly fillers, extracts to help moisturize the skin and Vitamin E, but I doubt that it'll be doing my face any good since Vitamin E will break down or dissipate or vanish when exposed to the sun.
The shades 01 in light beige. This shades very recomended for lighter skin. For application, I prefer to use a combination of sponge and brush. I usually apply the powder in a tapping motion first using the round sponge provided. After I have made sure that the powder is evenly distributed on my face, I use a powder brush (usually the Bobbi Brown complexion brush) to remove or knock off any excess powder that may have been sitting on my face. This will ensure that I get the coverage from the powder, but not cakey in result.
Scent this product is almost non scented/ The scent is weak imo. Texture are Fine and soft powder, easy to spread evenly. Coverage if u use this with dry sponge included, it will give u level (in the middle) between sheer to medium coverage.
One thing I notice straight away is lack of sunscreen in this powder and for once, I'm happy about it. I hate the white cast produced from products with sunscreen in it. Sure, it protects from the sun.
The redness on my cheeks are concealed, so my skin tone looks even. However, it doesn't do much in covering my dark spots. The finish is a more even out skin tone and smoother looking face. Oh, it also has a matte finish you can see the picture below.
Overall, I liked using this either as a foundation or for touch ups throughout the day. I like the light feeling when I use it and the matte look it gives, which is great for photos (I prefer matte finishes in my photos). Priced at Rp 139,000 my opinion it's Perfect choice for long lasting matte finish. Size: 14 g

Pros :
- nice matte finish
- between sheer to medium natural coverage, does not look chalky
- soft fine texture, easy to spread evenly
- not cakey
- no whitecast
- many shades available
- easy to get, available locally from where I live.
- moisturizing, does not dry my skin
- including nice sponge applicator
- almost non scented/ weak scent
Cons :
- No spf
- a bit expensive but never mind I got it for free Yuhu...
- average oil control
- average lasting power
Repurchase? Yes cause I've some of voucher from the goodie bag :D

Review Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup

Posted by Kania Safitri at 12:50 PM 0 comments
Hello beauties..
I'm back with another product review. This time is about a foundation that I was want it for a long time already. It's Estee Lauder Double Wear liquid foundation. 
I think I have FINALLY found my HG foundation. I have an oily T zone but dry cheeks. I have also have sensitive fair skin. This miracle in a bottle claims to provide flawless, lasting coverage that will withstand heat, humidity and sweat while feeling lightweight on the skin and looking completely natural throughout the day.
The price Rp. 450.000,- but I have voucher Rp.300.00 hwaaa... felt so happy I just paid Rp.150.00 for this item :)
There are 21 shades in total, and the shades are broken up into three categories, making it easier to find the right shade for your undertone. *As a side note, neutral in the Estee Lauder Double Wear line refers to peach.
W = Warm (1W1 Bone, 1W2 Linen, 2W1 Sand, 3W1 Tawny, 4W1 Shell Beige, 5W1 Bronze, 6W2 Spice)
N = Neutral (1N1 Ecru, 2N1 Desert Beige, 2N2 Fresco, 3N1 Ivory Beige, 4N1 Wheat, 5N1 Soft Tan, 6N1 Truffle)
C = Cool (1C1 Shell, 2C1 Dusk, 3C0 creme, 3C1 Pebble, 4C1 Suede, 5C1 Rich Chestnut, 6C1 Rich Cocoa)

*Warm = red, yellow undertones, Cool = pink/rosy undertones. 

Packaging: I'm not a fan of the packaging, but I'm not a fan of any of Estee Lauder's packaging, for the records. It's pretty simple and standard, which is fine, but because of the pour-bottle design, the top and cap can get very messy. So if you use this foundation often and you prefer a pump, it may be something you'd like to look into. 
It's pretty crucial to find the right color match with this foundation because of the opaque coverage. Sheer foundations are usually more forgiving, but with full coverage foundations, to avoid looking like you're wearing a "mask" of makeup, you really need to take the time at your local counter in finding the closest shade to match your skintone. I used 3C0 cool creme.

This foundation dries quickly once applied to the face, but it's not difficult to work with when dry. I find that it layers well (although I'm always good with one layer) without looking blotchy. Once the foundation has set, your skin should feel dry to the touch. If you find this difficult to work with, applying a moisturizing base prior to the foundation can help.
It provides medium to full coverage. With one layer it covers just about everything, including light sun spots and blemishes.
Estee Lauder Double Wear has a semi-matte, soft-focus finish that doesn't look dull. I rarely ever have to set with a powder and my skin barely gets any shine throughout the day. It holds up incredibly well throughout the day. From morning till the time I go to sleep, my foundation is still in place.

Lastly, because this foundation is water resistant, some may find that it's difficult to remove. A cleanser containing oil works best (or you can add a drop of any oil to your cleanser - olive oil, jojoba oil, baby oil, etc.) My favorite makeup remover wipes; Revlon Makeup Remover work perfectly.

PROS: This foundation lives up to all of it's claims (in my experience at least). It provides medium to full coverage that looks natural when it's not over-applied, it endures heat and sweat like a champion and doesn't transfer as easy as most of my other foundations. It also stays in tact till the moment I go to sleep, so it deserves an A+ for lasting power.  

CONS: The only real cons with this foundation is that it doesn't photograph well (gives a white cast in flash photography). Also, even though there is a good range of shades, the color selection still isn't all that great. I found that the cool shades are very pink and the neutral shades leaned pretty orange. Also, if you apply too much of this foundation, it can look unnatural (less is more!).

OVERALL: If you can find your color match in this foundation, I won't doubt that you're going to love this foundation. I think some are quick to label this foundation as too heavy or too fake, but with any pigmented foundation, you have to take in consideration that you're not going to need as much product as with a lighter coverage foundation. Start out with less than you think you're going to need, and build if necessary. Starting out with too much at once will only set yourself up for disaster. This foundation has high rating for all skin types, and it's especially beneficial for combination oily skin types because of it's close to matte finish and long-wearing abilities. 

Ok. Let me know.. Do you like it?
Have you tried them out?

Review theBalm Balm Shelter Tinted Gloss SPF 17

Posted by Kania Safitri at 12:44 PM 0 comments
Hello beauties..

Yup lets go to review yah... hehe  review kali ini adalah the Balm Balm Shelter Tinted Gloss SPF 17
I bought this Lip gloss from Beauty class the Balm last month and I love it.
One my top fave lip glosses It's a very moisturizing lip gloss and is a lush sheer coral colour that is great for the summer. The pakacging simple and travel friendly.

This sheer gloss contains 5,5 g and  SPF 17 for lip protection and jojoba for moisture, but don’t expect tons of opaque color!
The colour is in "Girly Girl" and has tiny shimmers running through it. Girly Girl is a pale peach with golden shimmer.

I love the colour on my lips and the smell is amazing, just like melon's and banana's, It has a tartness that smells more real than most of the fruit scented products that are out there.

Overall: There are things I like and don’t like about these. I like that they have an SPF 17 in them. I like how shiny they are and the tubes are very lightweight. I do prefer more coverage. You can use them over other lip products, but I wish they were less expensive for the amount!

- Good Aplicator
- Very moisturizing lip gloss
- Simple packaging
- Travel friendly
- Great smell.

-Expensive for me :(

RATING  : 4.9/5
REPURCHASE : YEP! But I think I want to try another color 

Let me know, have you ever tried it?
feel free to comment :)...

Review: Paula’s Choice SHINE STOPPER Instant Matte Finish

Posted by Kania Safitri at 1:31 PM 1 comments
Hi everyone! Today I I’m going to be reviewing Paula’s Choice SHINE STOPPER Instant Matte Finish, a mattifying primer.

The product claims to have “microsponge technology” which “works instantly and over time to help absorb and trap excess oil as it reaches your skin’s surface. Much like a sponge absorbs moisture, Microsponge uses special porous polymers that not only absorb excess oil but also leave your skin feeling powdery smooth and fresh. Think of this technology as millions of spherical sponges working to keep your oily skin looking beautifully refined and perfectly matte without dryness or dullness.”

This product comes in a squeeze-tube with a thin, pointed applicator and twist-off top. The packaging isn’t the most aesthetically pleasing, but it’s the most sanitary, travel-friendly possible. You only need about a pea sized dab for your oily areas.

There are multiple ways to use this product. Personally, I mix it in with my sunscreen and apply it before applying foundation. Alternatively, you can use a sponge to dab on the product on top of your foundation in the places you get shiny. You can also use it over your moisturizer to help keep shine at bay even if you don’t wear makeup.

This product is a silky white lotion. It becomes invisible when rubbed in, with no white cast in person or on flash photography. It doesn’t make you look too matte or chalky, and it does not dry out skin.

Like all Paula’s Choice products, this one is fragrance free–a great thing for any product you put on your skin, particularly your face. The product itself feels like a silicon gel and applies clear, so you don’t have to worry about it altering the color of your makeup. This also makes it a good option for guys who want an invisible mattifier.

On extremely hot days when my forehead sweats, sweat is able to break through the primer. This didn’t surprise me, as the product never claimed to last through sweating.

It doesn’t pill when applied over/under foundation/BB Cream. I did not see a significant reduction in pore size, however my pores are not that big in the first place, nor was I looking for a pore-shrinking primer. That being said, no product can actually shrink your pores. Some primers can act like Spackle, filling them in, but nothing will actually reduce their size.

I like to tap a little dab of this over my face midday to take away shine for a few hours. It functions well as a preventative step or a touch-up.

Overall, I think this is worth checking out if you have oily skin. I don’t know why it suddenly became less effective; if you’ve experienced that before or you know why, please let me know.

What’s your favorite mattifying primer?

Review Skin 79 Triple Function BB Cream (Super Beblesh Balm) Hot Pink

Posted by Kania Safitri at 1:25 PM 0 comments
I heard a lot of good things about BB creams and that it is good for acne/scarred skin. BB Cream, also known as Blemish Balm (or beblesh balm) is a cosmetic product that was originally formulated in Germany. Patients who just received laser surgery used it and it would provide protection to the skin while also providing coverage. It grew very popular in South Korea and soon, it exploded all over Asia.

BB cream provides moisture, protection, coverage and can even improve the texture of the skin. These days, BB creams come in many different formulas; some even out skin tone, some help acne, some provide wrinkle improvement etc.

Most BB creams contain SPF, (some contains LOTS of SPF) which means whilst it will protect your skin from harmful UV rays, it can also make your skin ghastly. This is my only disadvantage with some BB creams, the fact that it can be ‘too light’ on the skin. I really hope that BB creams will have more ‘shades’ for different skin tones one day.


This BB cream is highly raved about so I decided to try out this little baby. I’m not surprised why it's so raved about because this BB cream does everything a BB cream is supposed to do. Coverage is great and it blends beautifully. Can be applied using a brush or fingers; both works fine. It doesn’t get oily on the skin which is a good factor since I feel most BB creams tend to do this. Doesn’t feel sticky or heavy yet keeps the skin feeling moisturized. It isn’t ‘too white’ like most BB creams which is again good for me.

When I applied this BB cream on my face, I noticed how good it smells. I have never smelled anything like this, but it is a very calm smell if you know what I mean. The smell just calms me down.
One of the best things about pakacging this BB cream is the pump. This pump lets you squeeze out as much as you want or as less as you want. Basically, you are in control of how much you want to come out of that bottle. The pump also makes this BB cream a very hygienic one.
 It's supposed to have whitening properties. I can’t really tell if it does because my face has always been pale as far as I can remember. Although I really feel that it has helped to lighten my acne scars a little. It's supposed to have wrinkle improvement but I don’t really know about that yet. Like most BB creams - once applied on the face, it can look ‘ashy’ but when it oxidizes, it looks great. This BB cream contains SPF of 25, not much at all.

Price : Rp. 189,000- for 40gr (but I Got this product free from Skin79 Indonesia )
Pros of Skin79 Super Plus Beblesh Balm BB Triple Functions:
  • The smell has a very calming effect.
  • Fills in my pores.
  • Very thick but feels light on the face.
  • Bottle has a pump.
  • Can’t wear by itself because of the shade, but perfect to wear under my foundation.
  • Contains a lot of product.
  • Price is reasonable.
  • Covers a lot of my scars.
Cons of Skin79 Super Plus Beblesh Balm BB Triple Functions:
  • SPF 25 which I think is too less (personal preference is SPF of 35 and more)
